Briefly about the design sprint
Design sprint is a method that in a short time leads to the validation of an idea — whether it is a new product, service or strategy. This approach involves an intensive, time-limited process for participants going through various steps to identify, define, develop and test innovative solutions.
Design sprint was first developed by Google Ventures, and it has since been used by companies around the world, to speed up product development, improve user experiences and come up with innovative ideas.
The goal of a design sprint is to drive innovation and/or development with the lowest possible risk, without wasting time and resources. No endless discussions, but all participants get an equally clear voice in the process.
What will you learn in the course?
During the two days of the course, you will learn how to manage a challenge using the design sprint method.
You will be introduced to basic principles of design, creative techniques of idea generation, prototyping and user testing. Through practical exercises, you will gain hands-on experience leading and participating in a design sprint team.
The course will also address the following:
Problem definition: Learn how to identify the core of the problem and formulate a clear challenge for the design sprint.
Idea development: Explore different techniques to generate innovative ideas and find solutions that really work.
Prototyping: Learn the principles of how to quickly and efficiently prototype to visualize your solutions and get valuable feedback.
Teamwork and communication: You will learn how to present the exercises, manage the time, inspire the team and make sure that the sprint runs smoothly over 4 days.
After the course, you will also have access to our digital resource hub. Here you will find useful videos, links to external resources as well as downloadable resources.
The videos go through all the steps of a design sprint, so you can easily refresh the knowledge you gain in the course. Here you also get access to all of the forms and checklists you need for implementation.
Who is the course suitable for?
Suitable for designers, consultants, project managers and managers who want to lead their own innovation or development processes with heaviness and confidence.
Whether you work in the public or private does not matter, everyone will benefit from implementing design sprint in their work.
The course will be conducted as a combination of lecture and practical exercises, with the most emphasis on the latter. Our experienced course supervisors will guide you through the process and ensure you get the most out of the course.
The course runs over two days and is held in our premises in Trondheim or Oslo.
It is also possible to conduct corporate internal courses on their premises.
Design sprint to what?
The process is very applicable and can be used to develop:
- Digital and physical services
- Websites and Apps
- Market Strategies
With a course in facilitating design sprint, you and your colleagues will be able to work effectively with different challenges you face in your everyday work day.

Complex products — easily presented
How do you create a digital solution that elegantly stitches multiple companies together into one? How do you take into account different customer groups, products and stakeholders — without getting messy? Here's how we solved it for tech group Kiona.
Two concepts fully tested in one month of design sprint
Can a solution for the future of public transport be designed in two weeks? Together with transport company aTB, we showed the enormous power of the design sprint methodology — and why iterations are more important than many people think.
- Increo has shown us how important design is
Complicity requires commitment. So when Trøndelag County Council wanted input from children and young people in their new cultural plan, they needed a communication platform that inspired participation. The secret ingredient? Good design, of course.
